John Jay Student Vets Learn Water Exercise Techniques for Mind and Body Wellness

October 22, 2013 | John Jay College of Criminal Justice

W.E.T.s FOR Vets (Water Exercise Techniques) was created by Dr. Jane Katz, of the department of Health & Physical Education. According to Dr. Katz, “This new program helps to practice a holistic mind, body, and spiritual wellness to our veteran population. It is available to John Jay College students and their families who have served our country, and is based on the need of healing for persons injured by the nature of their occupation. The wounds of war are not always physical, and this program provides both a positive physical and emotional experience with beneficial effects. The unique healing properties of water, especially buoyancy, allow a holistic approach to wellness to be achieved with the W.E.T.S. for Vets program.”
